Salsa - Restaurant Style
We love salsa with the bright, fresh taste of cilantro and lime!
Salsa is really easy to make at home and our family loves this version better than most restaurants.
It uses quite a few jalapenos, but we remove the seeds from most of them to create a milder salsa.
If you like hot salsa, leave the seeds in and get ready to sweat!
Our recipe for salsa is so delicious and it makes a huge batch.
This yields approximately 3 + quarts.
NOTE: If you prefer a milder salsa, remove all the seeds and veins from the jalapenos before adding them to the food processor.
5 - 28 oz cans whole tomatoes with juice
4 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons garlic salt
4 teaspoons onion powder
juice of 4 limes
2 teaspoons salt
1 bunch fresh cilantro
1 red onion
Using a food processor, pulse the onion and jalapenos until they are in tiny bits.
Add the cilantro and pulse, but don't emulsify.
Remove the onions, jalapenos and cilantro from the food processor and place into a very large mixing bowl.
Add the tomatoes to the food processor and pulse until they are chopped well but not emulsified. Tiny bits of tomatoes are what you are trying to achieve here.
Add the tomatoes to the vegetable mixture.
Add seasonings and lime juice.
Stir to combine well.
Store in Mason jars or airtight containers inside the refrigerator for a few hours before serving.
